In the UK and worldwide there is an increasing awareness of environmental health, and the quality of the air we breathe. This awareness has put pressure on those generating pollutants, like fugitive emissions, to increase their monitoring, control and reporting activities.

Demolition and earthworks have the potential to release large amounts of dust into the air which can have a significant impact on the local air quality. These events need to be measured accurately so as to ensure mitigation measures are performing effectively. When choosing a dust monitor make sure that it has been approved by the Environment Agency’s certification scheme MCERTS.  

The United Kingdom’s environmental agency Monitoring Certification Scheme (MCERTS) is based on International and European emissions standards and is the framework for these quality requirements. Having an MCERTS certification provides the Environmental Agency with confidence that the instrument can accurately monitor environmental emissions.

All of our monitors have been tested and certified to perform at a concentration level up to 10,000µg/m³ ensuring that any significant dust release can be measured with a high degree of accuracy. We believe this is important as such events could give rise to complaints requiring a contractor to provide evidence.  Having accurate and reliable data from an MCERTS monitor can provide defensible information and ensure that best practices are being followed. 

Air pollution an dust monitoring equipment

TSI’s line of DustTrak™ Aerosol Monitors are used to measure dust particulates corresponding to: 

  • PM1
  • PM2.5 
  • PM10 
  • Total Suspended Particulate 

These instruments are ideal for compliance monitoring whereby a site operator is required to demonstrate the efficacy of their dust management and mitigation controls. Our MCERTS certified monitors provide real-time accurate data that can be used to evidence the performance of control measures and demonstrate compliance. Our DustTrak Environmental air pollution monitors have been designed and built to provide accurate and reliable dust monitoring data in the harshest of environments. Each model has been tested and proven to perform in the most challenging climate and dust conditions:

  • Weatherproof enclosure with added strengthening bars
  • Designed to handle extreme temperatures of -20°C to +50°C
  • Security lock
  • Integrated heated inlet for pre-sampling conditioning
  • Supplied pre-assembled for fast and simple setup    
  • Plug and play sensors for multi parameter monitoring such as weather, gasses and noise. 
  • Wireless and cellular data connectivity for remote access via the cloud
  • Remote auto drift correction
  • Supplied pre-assembled – just add power
  • Long service intervals

The compact, weather-proof enclosure houses the DustTrak Environmental Photometer, along with other key components including a long-life pump, built-in auto zeroing, and a heated inlet for sample conditioning.

Robust Design For Long Run Time

  • Built upon patented, proven DustTrak Aerosol Monitor technology
  • Long-life pump (life expectancy >10,000 hours)
  • Built-in auto zero module minimizes drift over long sample runs and temperature changes
  • Secure, weather-proof enclosure

Reduced Cost Of Operation

  • Instant access to real-time data—anytime, anywhere—via the web
  • Manage multiple sites from a single location eliminates costly field trips
  • Generate reports quickly and easily
  • SMS text messaging and email alert capabilities directs workers to take action
  • Long-lasting parts minimize downtime
  • Easy maintenance with field-replaceable parts

DustTrak Environmental air quality monitors are very versatile and can be easily integrated with a wide range of sensors to provide multi parameter monitoring through one single platform:

  • Gases (NOx, SOx, Ozone and more)
  • Wind speed and direction
  • Temperature and humidity
  • Barometric pressure
  • Precipitation
  • Noise
  • Vibration
  • VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)

Who is it for?

DustTrak™ Environmental is the ideal solution for anybody who needs a real-time, accurate and reliable solution to measure dust particulate levels generated by site activities such as:

  • Demolition and ground works
  • Construction and remediation dust monitoring
  • Fenceline monitoring
  • Quarry and mine operations
  • Port and bulk handling terminals
  • Waste management and landfill sites
  • Brownfield developments

Construction activities including earthworks, demolition and the movement of vehicles on site can lead to the emission of dust.  These emissions are primarily in the more coarse size fraction PM10 but can also be in the finer dust size of PM2.5. Emissions of this size fraction and below are normally attributed to diesel engine exhaust from plant machinary. DustTrak™ is the only monitor that has been tested and certified to provide simultaneous real-time readings for these size fractions.

Dust concentration and air monitoring from a mining or bulk transfer operation can help ensure the protection of employees and the surrounding environment and communities. Air quality monitoring instruments can be deployed around the perimeter of the site, ensuring the particulate matter is not at dangerous levels when it leaves the boundary and makes its way into the environment.

DustTrak air quality monitors deployed in traffic pollution hot spots enable local authorities to measure and view concentration levels of PM10 and PM2.5 in real-time.  The captured data will give an indication of how effective an “Air Quality Management Area” is at reducing pollutants and achieving is target limits.  

Implementing the proper air pollution measurement and air quality monitors can confirm that dust suppression controls are working properly and provide the needed data enabling you to protect your employees.

MCERTS certified

TSI DustTrak™ Environmental Monitors are certified compliant for use by the UK Environment Agency. The compliance testing has been carried by the MCERTS certification scheme which is administered by the international CSA Group. Conformity testing was undertaken by Bureau Veritas by co-locating the DustTraks with reference instruments SEQ 47/50 manufactured and supplied by Sven Leckel GmbH. These results show how accurate the DustTrak monitors, almost 98% against the reference method.
